Protect Yourself from COVID-19 Scams and Fraud

The Novel Coronavirus, or COVID-19, has brought great changes to our economy and our way of life.  One thing that hasn’t changed during this pandemic is the fact that scammers and fraudsters are still trying to trick us into giving them our money or our personal information.  The new twist on current scams is that they are playing into emotions tied to the COVID-19 crisis.  This presentation will provide attendees with information on COVID-19 scams, including treatment scams promising fake cures, supply scams offering to sell medical supplies, provider scams seeking payments for treating family members who were not treated, charity scams asking for donations, price gouging scams and more.
